Storyline

Devastated when she is told that that her sister, Jessica Lall, is shot dead by Manish Bhardwaj, the son of Pramod, a Congress party Member of Parliament in Haryana, Delhi-based Sabrina Lall, in the company of her parents, attends the Court to view a charade that will lead to the acquittal of the accused and his accomplices seven years after the incident. Disillusioned by rampart police corruption and inefficiency; a stagnant British introduced legal system; the passing of her mother & the hospitalization of her father, she retreats unto herself. Then foul-mouthed NDTV employee, Meera Gaity, known for being more of an activist than a Journalist, takes an interest in this incident, and uncovers conspiracy & corruption that led to the accused' acquittals - leading to a near India-wide protest. While preparing herself to participate in a candle-lit procession at Delhi's India Gate, Meera will confront Sabrina and will come to know the reasons why the latter refuses to be involved in this...

No One messes with Rani, Vidya and Rajkumar Gupta!
7 January 2011 | by manjodudeSee all my reviews

This is director Rajkumar Gupta's second movie after Aamir, and having watched both, I must say he is a very good director, and very engaging in his movie-making style. Talking about the movie, anyone who's yet to watch this must be curious if it's a straight lift from the true story of Jessica Lal's death. But the movie makers say it's a mix of fact & fiction. So I'll not make any judgement on how accurate it has been about Jessica's life. As a movie, it scores.

Delightful music, fine & accurately done costumes, very good acting and attention grabbing scenes(nearly all of them) are the pros.

The leading stars of the movie, Rani Mukherjee and Vidya Balan share equally strong roles and they also come up with top notch performances. Vidya Balan still needs more edge with her emotional scenes while I feel Rani has not been guided effectively. There were some serious moments when Rani's expressions were filmy. I will not blame her as she's capable of powerful acting. Probably, she just went by whatever the director asked her to do. Even then, it's so refreshing to see Rani's act as a bold & brave journalist showering nearly everyone with gaalis and Vidya being so understated in her body language. But, I think the Actor of the Day award should go either to the lady who plays the role of Rani's news assistant who does a class job while interviewing victim Jessica's friend, Vikram Jai(actor Neil Bhoopalam) or actor Rajesh Sharma as the lazy-looking, mean but sincere cop who interrogates the accused Manish Bharadwaj(actor Mohammed Ayyub). Unfortunately, I do not know the lady's name. Good job also by the rest of the acting cast like Neil, Samara Chopra(famous for her NDTV Goodtimes Yoga shows) and the beautiful Myra(as Jessica).

The best scene is the camera sting scene by Rani's assistant with Neil Bhoopalam. It was brilliant, mainly due to the lady's natural performance. Also, the scene were Rani & Vidya meet at the Delhi India Gate for the first time must have wet many eyes in the audience. It was very moving.

Any negative aspects? The death scene of Jessica could have struck a chord with the audience but it really didn't. It looked like any other movie murder moments. Probably one or two of Vidya's emotional scenes which weren't as effective as I expected and also some typical filmi expressions of Rani.

It may or may not be entertaining but the movie has quite effectively spread a message that public participation in any worthwhile cause can create miracles, and make impossible stuff possible.

Verdict: Thank you Rajkumar Gupta for a movie that's as good as Aamir, if not better. Viewers, your ticket will be worth it.
